Night Skies: Orchestral Music of Katherine Hoover

Denisa Danielova (mezzo), David Perry & Suzanne Beia (violins)

Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra, The Wisconsin Philomusica, Joel Eric Suben, Vartan Manoogian


Night Skies includes four orchestral works of Hoover’s, all first performed since 1987. Three of them -Two Sketches, Eleni: A Greek Tragedy, and the title work–are performed by the Slovak Radio Symphony orchestra under the direction of American conductor Joel Eric Suben. In Eleni the vocal soloist is mezzo-soprano Denisa Danielova. These recordings were supervised by the composer. The Double Concerto is played by a U.S. orchestra making its recording debut: the Wisconsin Philharmonia, conducted by Vartan Manoogian, with violin soloists David Perry and Suzanne Beia.

Night Skies was inspired by the famous Henri-Edmond Cross painting, now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. That painting, reproduced with the permission and assistance of the Museum, makes for most appropriate and impressive cover art. All of these compositions have been peformed successfully in the U.S. to critical and audience acclaim



Night Skies: “Hoover’s music mixes elements of old and new, in a masterful blending of old and new into a cohesive whole.” –Harrisburg Patriot-News

Two Sketches:”Hoover’s Two Sketches scored with immediate accessibility and an impressive combination of depth, maturity, and power.” –San Francisco Eraminer

Eleni:”The first standing ovation for a contemporary work in our orchestra’s history.” Carolann Martin, conductor, South East Kansas Symphony

Double Concerto: “It delighted our soloists, orchestra, and audience alike” –Paul Mori, conductor. Baltimore Bach Ensemble
